A South Korean man and woman suffered minor injuries when they stepped off a bus and fell into a sinkhole in Seoul. The accident on Friday (February 20) was captured by a CCTV camera.

The video shows the two people in their 20s getting off the bus and taking a couple of steps before stepping on to an area of the sidewalk that gave way. Rescue crews lifted them out of the hole using a crane.

The Yonsan Fire Station says they were taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for their injuries. The Yonsan Fire Station added that the hole was about 1.2 metres (3.9 feet) wide and 3 metres (9.8 feet) deep.
